    Dan Osborne has one ambition in life. He wants to be a permanent park ranger in Yellowstone National Park, a place where his family roots run deep. He'll do just about anything to make his dream a reality. When a pretty tourist tells him an incredible story about his ancestors, his dreams might be realized sooner than he hoped. Jana Evans' best friend traveled back in time for true love. Not only is a weathered diary proof that she survived, so is the handsome park ranger standing before Jana now.

    Story

    Even though this was book five in the series, I think it fits better as book two. I tried reading the actual second book but was not feeling the lead guy. I decided to skip to this book as it happens shortly after the first one ends. And this is Jana's story, which I was really interested in reading.

    I really liked the time travel elements in this story. Sometimes I get iffy on that theme, but I totally enjoyed the way it was used in this book and the first. Maybe it was most interesting to me because I am not familiar with the history of Yellowstone. I loved hearing about the time period and challenges faced.

    I really liked Jana and her spunky, loyal personality! She goes above and beyond for a friend. I like that she is not a pushover and takes time to show her anger after the deception. She took a while to forgive and really made him work to regain her trust and affections.

    Dan is actually a great character, once you get past his mistakes, and he does work to atone. He is young and made a huge error in judgement, but that is what leads to him and Jana getting back together. Without that deception there would be no story. I liked that he was another rugged wilderness man. Yummy take charge fella!

    There is a little bit of steam, not full on erotic detail, but smexy enough to get a gal warm!! You might need to fan your face!! A little bit of spice to heat up the romance!!

    This is a mixed narrative that swaps between the two lead characters. I enjoy getting both sides of the romance, it really makes it a fuller story. There were a few spots that felt redundant because a conversation was worded almost the same as when the characters was thinking about things. It is a picky thing that gets to me as a reader, if they thought it out in detail they do not have to have the same detail in a conversation.

    I listened to the audiobook narrated by Alexandra Haag. She does a great job with the voices and keeping them distinct. She has a great pace for the read, adding energy to action scenes making them even more dramatic. She really fits the story and makes it come to life.

    Overall, the story is really great and very involved. The pace is great and moves smoothly through the story. Really terrific characters who are engaging and real. I was totally taken by the book from beginning to end. Warning, have tissues handy, if you are emotional like myself, you will need them! Kudos on great storytelling that had me sobbing and laughing.

    In the end I am good with doing book one and book five in the series. They are the most connected stories and had the great time travel angle. I read the blurbs on the other books and they are tenuous connections at best. I am usually the kind of person who must read every book in a series, but I am good with just these two. The books are most likely as well crafted as the two I read, but the stories just do not grab me, but check them out, cause they might appeal to you as a reader! If not book 1 and 5 work well as a duology!

    Shannon and Declan's first real date ends with an ambulance trip and yet another test of their madcap relationship. Ex-boyfriend Steve insists on dinner with Shannon while Declan is overseas on business, but a surprise return leads to plenty of romance as Declan whisks her away for a ride over Boston (in more ways than one...) .

    Story

    Oh no, the book ended but the story didn't!!! Waaaa, I want the next part now!!!! In audio, not ebook!!!! I really hate waiting!!!!

    The story picks up with that second date for Shannon and Declan. Oh course there will be a catastrophe! That is the life they lead! I am uber clumsy and klutzy myself, I can relate. Events get dramatic quickly.

    I love the banter between these two, they feel so natural. It makes for a dynamic relationship. Sigh, I want a billionaire to sweep me away in a limo and a helicopter.

    The narrative is all from Shannon's POV still, I do not expect that to change. She is fun and flighty, while more responsible than her family. The supporting cast is, as always, hilarious!!! Such a quirky fun bunch.

    Oh yeah, things finally get smexy!!! The bedroom door is open, with just enough naughty detail to warm a girl up. It verges on erotic, but feels more mainstream sexy. Sigh, to be swept away like that!!

    There are some angles of this book that bother me. Your jerk ex-boyfriend keeps texting you, do not go out with him. Who cares about that jest, you have a sexy billionaire calling on you. The other conflict, that will spill over into the next book, seems contrived. He does know the nature of her job and things that occur. We shall see how that all turns out.

    I listened to the audiobook narrated by Tanya Eby, who is delightful! She has the perfect tone for the vibe of this book. I love the way she adds energy and sass to the characters. She keeps the story moving right along with her swift pace. Terrific addition of emotions into the voices, especially at key moments. This has been a fabulous blend of story and narration.

    This is the place where I am sitting twiddling my thumbs waiting for the last book in the serial. While it has been a delightful read, the sectioned out story is annoying. Having it all in one book would be preferable. I really enjoyed the writing and flow of the storytelling, I will be looking for more of Ms Kent's books, but only if they are all in one or already released.

    I do hope this is a series, perhaps giving those billionaire brothers HEA or her BFF and sister finding love. Really fun characters have such potential.

    Story

    I read the ebook a while back, and my thoughts on the story stand. Now rereading in audiobook format brings so much back. This is a great way to gear up for reading the 5th book in the series!

    The story her was very involved and flowed beautifully!! I was with it from beginning to end!! Really rich story telling that created a fabulous atmosphere! What a great way to kick off the series and give us some delicious paranormals to look forward to in the future!!

    Sydney is a really kickbutt chick with serious attitude, maybe a touch too much at times. I will give her a pass though cause she is totally a Philly girl and that is how they are! She gets better in the end and I totally loved her!!

    Kade is very delicious tall dark handsome Vamp!! He is rather swoon worthy and very Alpha!!! I loved that he was quick to recognize Syd as the one!

    Loads of yummy supporting characters to make a gal drool!! And definite hints at the next book!! And yes their stories play out in the next books in the series. Deliciously Alpha men and sassy women!

    The mixed narrative is great but at times disconcerting. It is always clear who the narrator is but it changes from paragraph to paragraph. It flows better in the audio, but you need to stay on your toes to keep up with who is speaking. Really fabulous hearing from supporting characters too! It made the story fuller.

    The steam is delicious!! It is more of a tease for most of the book but once they get it on, holy hot and heavy!! Some very slippery shower action and a desk scene to make you scream!! There is a visit to a BDSM club and mention of tying up but no real play happens for these characters. Perhaps it will be a part of future books.

    The audiobook is narrated by Ryan West, who is delicious!! His voice will melt your panties, especially at the naughty bits!!! Not sure I loved the accents, the slight British is not always consistent. The pace is great, really keeps things moving at slower moments. I enjoy that he doesn't try to go to high with the women, although she is kind of breathy. Still, he can seduce me with his voice any day!!

    I still adore this series, there is just something about it that draws you into the dark and dangerous world. I can not wait for the rest of the series to pop up in audio!!

    New York Times best-selling author Julia Kent continues her Shopping for a Billionaire series as mystery shopper Shannon and (near) billionaire Declan explore a relationship (and each other). The pair deal with a jealous ex-boyfriend, a new perk at work that makes Shannon rethink her job, and a cat that offers up quite a present when Declan takes Shannon out for their first non-business date.

    Story

    I hate serials, but I love this book!! The whole series is out, so no wait time, but It is annoying only getting the story bit by bit.

    Book two continues the story for Shannon and Declan. The romance is still at a flirtation stage. This book is gearing up for the all important second date, after the fiasco of the first. I expect much comedy in that outing!

    I love all the wonderful supporting characters and the hilarious banter. The situations are fabulous. Because the books are so short, the outside stuff is overwhelming the romance at this time. If this was all together in one book, it would seem like the natural progression of things. Right now each book feels like a different episode of a fun and flighty sitcom.

    Again the whole book is from Shannon's POV, which isn't bad because she is awesome. She cracks me up throughout the read. Everything comes up as dynamic in this engaging read! Love everything about this, except when it ends!

    The romance is light at sweet, some kissing but no sexing. Plenty of lusting but no bedroom action yet. Still lovin the whole thing!

    I listened to the audiobook narrated by Tanya Eby, who is delightful! She has the perfect tone for the vibe of this book. I love the way she adds energy and sass to the characters. She keeps the story moving right along with her swift pace. The men's voice are just masculine enough, without seeming like a caricature. The voices are consistent and distinct throughout the read. She gives good voice!!!

    I am totally digging this fun read, definitely looking for more of Ms Kent. I will be stalking...um following her!

    Wow!! I totally underestimated this book! I walked into it thinking it was a humdrum smutty serial. I was so very wrong!! To my utter shock this is a fun witty romance, with only a couple kisses!!! It is a serial, but I am willing to forgive that, because all the parts have been released on audio already. So, no nasty waiting time for me! Hooray!!!

    Shannon is a sassy, snarky curvy gal!! Just the sort I adore!! I loved her from the very start. How could you not!! I found my self laughing at her antics and never wanting it to end! The whole book is from her POV, which make it essential that she have an awesome personality, which she does!!!

    Declan is yummy and totally into her from the start. I would love to get him in the narration, it would help me see his side of the flirtation. I am very excited to see how it will all progress in the next book.

    In addition to how fabulous Shannon is, there are all the quirky fun supporting characters. From her grumpy cat to her outspoken mom, her bff and her cheapskate boss. This book is bursting at the seems with all the fun and witty banter!!! I had to pick up the ebook, just so I could make favorite quotes on Goodreads!!

    I listened to the audiobook narrated by Tanya Eby, who is delightful! She has the perfect tone for the vibe of this book. I love the way she adds energy and sass to the characters. She keeps the story moving right along with her swift pace. The men's voice are just masculine enough, without seeming like a caricature. Definitely a narrator I will be looking for more of in the future! She gives good voice!!!

    The book leaves off at on okay point, just starting things out and ready to see what comes next. As a general rule, I do not like books that are delivered piece mail. However, this one being all out already helps soften that for me. Pick up this first book free on Amazon and then get the audio on a whispersync deal. You will be just as hooked as I am!

    Veronica Mason, lead singer of the rockabilly band The Voodoo Zombies, discovers her vampire bass player staked through the heart. A vision of the murder flashes in Veronica's mind and she wonders if she's going bonkers. Up until now her supernatural skills consisted of a few botched love spells.

    Story

    This is a really interesting paranormal chick-lit, while there is a touch of romance, it is mainly about the suspense. That is all well and good, but I was hoping for more romance.

    Veronica is an interesting character, perhaps a bit to hapless at times. Girl, when you are being chased by possible bad guys and you think you got away, do not wander into a creepy abandoned house and woods!!!! Stay in your safe car!! Other than that she is fun to read and immensely like-able.

    The fellas surrounding her are another story. If I were in a band with a jerk like Frank, you can bet I would replace him. Doesn't matter how well he plays, he is an a$$hat. The cops are also far from sincere or like-able. Buzz is kind of dishy, but very mysterious. I adored her BFF Kitty, would love to see more of that relationship!

    The romance is kind of nonexistent. More of a flirtation. Only a few kisses, no true heat or steam.

    The whole book is from Veronica's POV, which limits things. You only know what she is thinking and feeling. This tends to keep you out of the loop about other's motives. In a mystery this is expected, I just wish we had a touch of her friends or the killer in the narration. It would have added depth.

    I liked the whole Rockabilly music scene, wish there could have been more of that. Loved the gigs and interactions at the bar/rehearsals. There was more to explore than the mystery killer. On the topic of that killer, there was way too many red herrings to sort through. I get that they were needed, cause otherwise it is pretty dang obvious who the killer is and why.

    I listened to the audiobook narrated by Elizabeth Klett, who does an excellent job with all the voices. She has a great tone that really adds to the quality of the read. Her pace is nice and swift, which I prefer. The men's voices were just deep enough to get an impression, but not so much they sounded overdone. Her energy throughout the read matched the pace and feel of the movement in the story. Terrific listening experience all around!

    I would be interested in seeing what is next. The ending leaves things open for the possibility of a series. That might be very interesting!

    Brand meets his dream girl in college - a half-human, half-leopard shapeshifter who cannot shift. Werewolves and cats are natural enemies, but the power of their sexual chemistry overwhelms them. She steals his heart and makes him whole. When she abandons him it fractures his world and he knows no woman can ever take her place. Though many seek his attention, he is cold and unattainable.

    Story

    I was really hoping the next book in the series would be one of the brothers. Brand is delicious, but I was digging all those smexy siblings.

    The book is slightly non-linear, we get the back story and then jump forward nine years. My major problem with the plot is that they were together and she leave him to mate with someone else. In my world that smacks of cheating. I know there are circumstances, aren't there always.

    Brand is delicious and Alpha and oh so protective. I kind of like that he was all about forgiving and getting his woman back. I was expecting that to be a bone of contention, but he was awfully sweet and understanding.

    Charma is great in the beginning, then that mating takes a lot of the spunk out of her. It is nice to watch her grow and get back to who she was before. It is a tough journey.

    Again with the insta hate between shifters. I feel like that is strange. I know they are basically dogs and cats, natural enemies, blah, blah, blah. The problem I have is that they are humans as well, they live in our society, so general rules should apply. Trying to kill someone on the street or fearing you will be killed in a college classroom, seem extreme. Okay, so I guess I have two complaints.

    The rest of the story flowed nicely. Plenty of action and movement in the plot. I love the mixed narrative, it really helps you understand the two leads. Hearing their POV gives you greater insights into their motivations and feelings.

    Oh course the steam is yummy and oh so detailed. Reunion smexy time is hawt!! What I wouldn't give for a smexy dominant wolf!! They really know how to talk naughty and follow through!!! Have a very cold shower ready!!!

    I listened to the audiobook narrated by G. C. VonCloudts, who does a great job. Plenty of variation in the voices and consistency. She has a great tone that leads itself to the material. I loved her energy throughout the read, especially in the naughty bits! The girl gives good voice!

    I do enjoy this series and I can only hope there will be more. I think it is kind of on the back burner because of Ms Dohner's other more popular series. Fingers crossed there will be more to come and all the siblings get HEA!!

    Story

    Sigh, the end of a series is always bittersweet. I was really loving the stories for the smexy twins. I could have used a but more in the resolution of the major plot, but it was great in the romance.

    I love yummy alpha types like Noah. He is all boss and Dom voice. Jesse really does not stand a chance. They have such awesome chemistry and the history makes the feeling believable.

    I was a bit disappointed in the end of the plot with the uncle, I just wanted more. There was so much build during the series, then it just kind of ends in ten minutes. I would love o see this book expanded, giving us more of the voodoo priestess and coven. I feel like there is so much story there that could be told.

    The narrative is a great mix of the leads and the bad gut. Mostly you get Noah and Jesse's POV, which gives you insight into their true feelings. There are many more layers at play here because they were together before and the issues with her demon half being secret.

    The steam is delicious. This series has rode the edge of BDSM, there are elements of Dominance and submission, without the scenes and protocols. Really hot and smexy lovin in this book. Oh yeah, Noah is definitely the roughest brother in the bedroom. Leaves me fanning my face.

    I listened to the audiobook narrated by Johanna Fairview, who does a great job with the read. She has a deeper raspy tone to her voice. It really works for the smexy scenes and the men's voices. She also added just the right touch of softness to the women's voices. When it comes to the energy of the smexy scenes, this narrator really gets into things! You can feel the action and tension of the moment in her enthusiastic narration! I loved her work throughout the series. I will definitely be looking for more of her reads. She gives good voice!

    This was a really interesting series, just short. It would be great to see the stories expanded, because there is so much that could be played with. With all the combustible relationships and quick love, I missed some of the natural build. Some of the couples had great banter, it was sadly cut short. The BDSM elements could be enhanced as well. This is all nit picking, at the end of the day I was entertained.

    Oh yeah, this is an uber smexy read!! The third book in the series is all about the steam!!! It does continue the on going story line, but mostly is is about the smexy time!!

    The narrative is mixed between the three leads and of course the bad guy. The is also a whisper more with a couple other supporting character's POV. It really helps keep the events of the series moving. Denn is yummy, Jake is a dream boat and Raven is surprisingly sweet. They make a great triad, if they can get past the distrust and past indiscretions.

    The smexy time takes up a good chunk of this book. You get plenty of variety with MM, MF and finally MMF. Oh yeah, this one is sure to stoke the fires of many a reader!!! Holy hot and heavy!

    Cash Scott has drifted for years, abusing his magick and playing the bad boy. Now as his time as a free witch is coming to an end, he plans a last ditch effort to save his brothers. What he finds instead is himself on a collision course with Selene, a hot little firestarter with a death wish, unable to control her power or escape her past. The perfect woman. Selene's accidental contact with a dark force she can't define, throws her into a situation unlike any she has seen before. But the last thing she needs right now is an all-consuming attraction to a man she can't trust.

    Another smoldering hot read, not just because she is a fire-starter!! This open is just as quick with the smexy lusty action as the first book. I am forgiving, because I understand the insta-connection the author is trying to establish. I generally like more build, but with the length of the story, I see the need for getting to the steam right away.

    Cash is delicious and tortured. Those are the sort of Alpha men you just cannot wait to see fall for the right lady. Selene is his perfect match. She may play the tough girl but she goes all soft and squishy for her man. I love their banter, makes me wish there could have been more time spent in that stage of the relationship.

    This book is a mixed narrative, giving the two leads POV and a couple bonus supporting character's perspective as well. It helps you get to the heart of the matter and draws you more into the story. I prefer this style because it enhances the world building and lets you know the leads on a more personal level. I adore getting into their heads and seeing both sides of the romance.

    I listened to the audiobook narrated by Johanna Fairview, who does a great job with the read. She has a deeper raspy tone to her voice. It really works for the smexy scenes and the men's voices.

You can feel the action and tension of the moment in her enthusiastic narration! Really great pace as well, keeps things moving right along.

    As I suspected the stories are all tied with the connecting thread of the curse. I expect that will not be resolved until the last brother gets his HEA. Definitely eager to know more about dishy Denn and a certain coven witch!

    His perfect match - or the woman destined to steal his soul? Graelen Scott has lived his entire life under the shadow of a prophecy - a curse that gave him unlimited power guaranteed to seduce him to an early grave. When a Tarot historian shows up with stolen family cards and a theory of balance, all hell breaks loose. But his insatiable lust for the blue-eyed beauty clouds his judgment, making it difficult for him to separate fact from fiction.

    This is a very interesting story and loads of yummy steam. There is insta-lust that has connected feelings. I do not hate that aspect, it is just something you have to accept in this series.

    The background story is spaced out in the book. It takes a bit to really get the gist of what is happening with the magic and the world that is being created. I expect more will be revealed as the series continues. With four brothers, two sets of twins, I am thinking things will be very connected.

    Graelen is very dark and delicious!! He is a serious Alpha guy, oh good lordy! Rena really does not stand a chance against all that power and sex appeal. They are a great pairing, once they get past the distrust.

    The steam is uber hot!! There are some very interesting moments here, a bit of a psychic menage, totally hot!!! There is also some BDSM type play, not serious protocols, but definitely tied down with ropes! For a short read there is a real smexy punch!

    The book is mostly from the two leads POV, giving you great insights into their characters. There is also a brief moment of the bad guy's perspective. It is a great way to make the read more engaging.

    I listened to the audiobook narrated by Johanna Fairview, who does a great job with the read. She has a deeper raspy tone to her voice. It really works for the smexy scenes and the men's voices. She also added just the right touch of softness to the women's voices. When it comes to the energy of the smexy scenes, this narrator really gets into things! You can feel the action and tension of the moment in her enthusiastic narration!

    I can not wait to jump into the next book, yummy twin brother Cash! Oh yeah, I expect plenty of heat!
